Chilton Primary School's Eco-group consists of two representatives from each class from year 1-6, and is run jointly with Mrs Suttner and Miss Reardon. The Eco-group members are voted in by their respective classes each September and hold the position for the academic year. They attend regular Eco-group meetings, promote environmental values to their peers through assemblies and classroom talks and take part in events and trips. For example, during 2016-17 the Eco-group took part in the RSPB Big Birdwatch, carried out a litter pick in the village, collected textiles for recycling and visited Ardley Energy Recovery Facility.
We are proud to have held the Eco Schools green flag for several years. This award requires us to cover nine topics, namely Energy, Litter, Waste, Water, Global Citizenship, Transport, Healthy Living, Biodiversity and School Grounds.
As part of our Eco Schools green flag award the Eco-group are required to complete an Environmental Review and Action Plan. Our Action Plan for 2017-18 is shown below.
